HENDRICKS COUNTY -- A big road construction project in Avon that's been planned for months for this summer is now delayed until 2019. 

The town of Avon announced that reconstruction of County Road 200 North (21st Street on the Marion County side) between Ronald Reagan Parkway and County Road 900 East won't take place until spring of next year. 

There's been a sign on 200 North announcing the upcoming work since last year.

But the town now cites delays in obtaining the state required permits, right of way acquisition and a longer than expected time frame for moving utility lines as the reasons for pushing back the project until next year.

This means two phases of reconstruction on 200 North will take place next year instead of one phase.

Work between County Road 900 East and Ronald Reagan Parkway is expected to take 12 weeks.

The other phase between Dan Jones Road and County Road 900 East should take 16 weeks. 

The bidding process will begin this fall. Due to the delay, the town will be getting estimates for doing temporary repairs on areas that need attention now.  

Next year's work will require tearing up the entire road down to the base and reconstructing it.
